Big Brother 2012 kicks off

'Big Brother' kicked off last night, welcoming a porn star, a former Playboy bunny and an ex-gang member to the reality TV house.

Sixteen people entered the house at the beginning of the Channel 5 show last night, ushered in by host Brian Dowling, but already three are up for eviction.

Miss India UK, Deana Uppal was selected at random to be the first person into the house, and told she had to pick three people based on first impressions who will now face the axe on Friday (08.06.12).

After the rest of the new housemates had entered Deana settled on picking ex-glamour model Victoria Eisermann, because she thought she had ''evil eyes'', personal trainer Conor McIntyre, 24, because he hadn't asked her many questions, and dancer Lydia Louisa, simply because she was sitting nearest to her.

Of the 16 housemates, 14 are single and all have been picked for their colourful lives and personalities.

Among the housemates are Adam Kelly, 27, who is from the West Midlands but was brought up on the tough streets of Los Angeles, where he was a member of the Crips gang.

Benedict Garrett, 32, is a former teacher who has lost his job when he was exposed as a porn star and former male prostitute.

Shievonne Robinson, 28, is a former Playboy Bunny who worked at the Playboy Casino in Mayfair, London. Her party trick is to smoke a cigarette with her boobs.

They are joined in the house by criminology student Lauren Carre, doorman Chris James, Caroline Wharram, Ashleigh Hughes, Luke Anderson, Luke Scrase, Anthony, Bhavesh and Scott Mason.
